like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to unanother must be equal, as well. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright, young students and engineers are listed in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. we know that america thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work. when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed when a little girl born in to the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else. >> and joining me now with his reaction to the president's speech yesterday, democratic congressman from maryland, chris van hollen. thank you so much for your time. >> it's great to be with you, tamron. >> as have perhaps read yourself or heard "the new york times" is calling the president's unapologetic, evolved. we ask the question, is this the liberal reagan? what is your thoughts on this
of supervisors and signed into law by the mayor. these groups say by authority of law we demand transparency and accountability and for that reason we're disappointed we were not notified of the report being issued today. indeed we found about it a couple of days ago by happenstance. we are shocked by the lack of substance. when members met with the chief in 2012 he assured us he would include information which we outlined in a letter sent to him on june 8, and to address another question that was presented by commissioner several meetings happened with the chief and staff happened in july and september and after the signing of the ordinance. in short we are disappointed that despite the verbal assurances this report failed to include anymore any useful information regarding the work and this lack of information makes it impossible for the public to have true accountability to know what the police department is doing with regard to this issue. a five minute presentation is not sufficient to that and my colleague will speak on the details of this. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you m

such great pride in the rule of law to have someone come to grips with the place of guns and violence. before we begin this discussioncomes out to you on personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, as in denver colorado on personal business and i was driving to the denver suburbs and i passed into oruro, colorado and saw the sign that to myself, as journalists often do, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago and a young man now appears to be utterly deranged, went to the theater and began shooting people with an assault weapon. and it went away. it is not part of a presidential debate, not part of the daily journalistic diet. so that wednesday night, i e-mailed the reduced their of the "meet the press" show coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we've been through oruro, the sikh temple, the shopping mall. think about this. this is before we got to sandy hook in it. we had a time of absolute carnage in america t
in law enforcement for years and years. and, mike, let's just you and i walk through what we know right now as we're looking at these pictures, coming into cnn for first time, what more do you know? >> well, brooke, we're hearing also from our affiliate kprc, they have one person detained there on campus. where on campus? we don't know. they don't -- they're not sure if this is the person who was the active shooter there, on the campus of the lone star college, harris north campus, they don't know. but i've been watching this for a number of minutes before i came on with you, brooke. and i've seen at least two, possibly three people that they had been working on, the ems has been working on, there on the scene. we don't know the conditions of anyone injured there. we don't know whether or not this person they have detained again is the active shooter that was there on campus. >> all right, mike. what is happening as we see this tremendous law enforcement presence? how do they, as we know that this college is telling people, if you're on campus, shelter in place. look at the masses of ca
be an entrepreneur. passing so many laws and regulations and taxes that they kill the start up businesses in ways that are crazy. >> i have to jump in. thank you so much for talking about entrepreneurship. you were there, you were a part of that. there has been so much destruction to the assistance program. talk about rules and regulations. those are things your administration, when you were the speaker of the house, so many of those types of rules and regulations were built into the program, so much that they have not responded to the recession. it is only able to reach about 30% of the children who are poor in this country. an incredible increase in child poverty been. micro finance would may be a great way to insert into the system. if a woman is receiving cash assistance or food stamps and she happens to, may be working on the side doing hair and nails, housekeeping, child care. fantastic things. that $50 or $100 she makes on the weekend, god forbid she reported to the case manager because she would be criminalized for something that would be celebrated in this country.

hundreds of ordinances and state laws. most of which were unconstitutional. and he didn't know what to do. johnson dearly did not want to send troops, united states army troops, into alabama. his fear was that this would precipitate really a second period of reconstruction. just as the marchers were getting ready to head out in defiance of a court or order, wh hundreds of deputies and troopers waiting for them. fruition came to a very subtle problematic plan that johnson had been working on all night, and king had been listening to all night. johnson said, former -- johnson sent former governor, rely collins, who had taken the job to run the federal con sillation service, on a plane at 2:00 in the morning. he was picked up by assistant attorney general john dore, and was driven to the place where king was staying. king came out of the bedroom wearing a robe and two officials gave him a plan. and lyndon johnson had participated in thinking it up. they said, reverend king, we not only have been talking to you, we've been talking to governor wallace, and he doesn't want anymore bloodshed, an
presence of police or whatever kind of security or law enforcement there because i believe when there is official law enforcement there -- i can't think of a euphemism for this but the bums and crack heads won't be at our doors. we won't get threatened and harassed. there have been life-threatening comments. there have been fights right inside of the store. just mainly that safety concern that is getting in the way of doing our business and we have been there -- this march marks three years of our anniversary of doing business there. i want to give sfpd credit. we have seen a substantial improvement. we appreciate them coming down there a few times but we kind of want to see a consistent presence and maybe build some relationship with the businesses, like something on a first name business. it would be nice to have a police officer or whoever come down, introduce themselves, and let us know that they're there at least, and just so we can have that feeling that -- that comforting feeling because for businesses and people that come to the area it's not comforting taw. we had
, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes su
, this after president obama proposes the most sweeping changes to u.s. gun laws in almost two decades. his plan is drawing a lot of criticism, including from, including a number of executive orders like stronger background checks and more support to law enforcement agencies but the main part of mr. obama's plan requires congressional approval. it calls for renewing an assault weapons ban that went into effect in 1994. then expired a decade later. now the question is whether all of this will be implemented and if so, will it make a difference? paul gigot is the editorial page editor of "the wall street journal." the president has suggested that, you know, the american people are behind these proposals. the question is, is the congress? >> well i think that remains to be seen and i think the reality is this is an uphill fight for the president and not merely because of republican opposition in the house of representatives, which they control. also because of democratic potential opposition in the senate. of course harry reid, the majority leader, has long been a big supporter of the nra and

differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid
